De Brabantse Pijl: Benoît Cosnefroy takes 2nd

Benoît Cosnefroy: “Mixed feelings”

“I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I’m happy to be here again today, but on the other, I’m still missing the win. It’s never easy to maneuver against a team that has numerical superiority, and they played the game very well. Congratulations to them. In the final, Warren Barguil attacked but I wanted to stay behind Tim Wellens. When I launched my sprint, Wellens drifted. I still managed to get past and take second place. This makes my second podium in two races in this Ardennes classics campaign. I’m certainly happy with my form.”Benoît
